Founded in 1998, ATIA is a non-profit organization that is global leading in assistive technology (AT) education and research.
Their mission is “… to serve as the collective voice of the assistive technology industry to help ensure that the best products and services are delivered to persons with disabilities.”
ATIA is best known for their annual conferences, but they also have an online learning center and a research committee. On their online learning center, you can register for a wide variety of courses covering assistive technology topics. These are geared for individuals with disabilities as well as caregivers and educators.
ATIA also has a research committee that implements evidence-based data to promote assistive technology developments and influence policy.
ATIA’s Annual Conference
ATIA’s annual conferences are extensive community building events. The conference is a platform for worldwide AT developers, manufacturers, and resellers to showcase their products, services and systems to people with disabilities, their caregivers, providers, educators and the general public.
It’s a wonderful opportunity for individuals to connect and learn from shared experience and different AT sessions. Likewise, organizations and developers demonstrate how their assistive technology can enhance users’ learning, working and daily living. Additionally, it gives users the chance to get hands on experience with AT that’s available and developers can get feedback and ideas for new developments.
ATIA Virtual Event
You don’t have to travel to the “Sunshine” state to attend the ATIA conference. If you’re interested in learning about assistive technology, you can register for their virtual conference where they make steamed and recorded sessions available.
If you’re just wanting to see what it’s all about without paying for the full virtual conference, they also offer some sessions and limited content with their free virtual conference bundle. Learn all about in-person and virtual conference registration options on their registration page at https://www.atia.org/atia-2024-registration/
